Art historians often characterized Wyeth’s work as ‘sentimental’ (oh the shade) as his style harked back to an earlier age & antithetical to abstract art.

Quite by happenstance I met Mr. Wyeth when I was a child. The occasion memorable because I my mother greeted him uncharacteristically with great reverence so I knew he was someone special. 🤷‍♀️

He was a friend or relative of our next door neighbor. Sometime afterwards my mother took me to a retrospective of his work at the Legion of Honor (I think) & remember being wowed. Perhaps that is why he was on the west coast. 🤷‍♀️
